Re: Verstappen should have been given blue flag to let Ocon

Verstappen made the mistake, simples, Ocon had every right to unlap himself. If after the overtake, Verstappen starts to catch Ocon, then Ocon would receive the Blue flag and would have to move over, however, this probably wouldn’t have happened as Max could manage the gap to Hamilton who was not ca...

Re: Haas VF16

Have to say, I f...

Just a hunch. He's got a tough teammate to deal with too though. He has been beating his tough team mate ...
